African-American girls, some teenagers, playing in the sand at a beach - possibly one in New Jersey during the 1970s. Flock of seagulls fly through a gray sky. The girls create a sand sculpture of an elephant. They shape the elephant's head and give it eyes. Six of the girls pose for the camera, sitting on the elephant sculpture. A black man poses with the girls. The umbrellas of other beachgoers are seen in the distance.
